About the Book

Thomas a Kempis was a German medieval Christian monk who was born in the late 14th century. His work "The Imitation of Christ" is one of the most widely read Christian spiritual books ever written. The book presents the idea that the study of Christ's life and the emulation of his example is the highest pursuit that man can achieve. Kempis's "The Imitation of Christ" is a spiritual classic and a must read for any ardent follower of Christianity.

First Sentence

"Whoever shadows my every move won't lose me in the dark" At least that's what Christ says, or what the Evangelist John heard Him say (8:12).
